The Dallas Stars (14-10-3) meet the Edmonton Oilers (13-11-2) at the American Airlines Center on Monday evening.
The Stars were last in action on Saturday afternoon, when they won 2-1 on the road at the Vancouver Canucks. They were a goal down until midway through the 3rd Period, when late goals from Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov saw the Stars rally to secure both points.
As things stand, the Stars are averaging 2.74 Goals per Game, which puts them a lowly 24th position in the overall NHL standings. Defensively they have a much better record, having allowed just 2.63 Goals per Game to leave them 4th in the NHL stats overall. On an individual basis, Benn is the Stars leading scorer this season with 11 goals, while Tyler Seguin has contributed 18 assists this season.
The Oilers come into this game on the back of a three-game winning run on home-ice, the latest of which was a 2-1 win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, with goals from Connor McDavid and Ryan Spooner proving decisive for the Oilers.
Like the Stars, the Oilers have not found scoring goals easy this season, with them having averaged just 2.69 Goals per Game, leaving them tied 26th in the overall NHL rankings. Defensively, they have allowed 3.04 Goals per Game, which puts them 16th overall. On an individual basis, McDavid has scored 14 goals and has recorded 21 assists.
This is not an easy game in terms of bet predictions, but the Stars are the picks on the Money Line odds given home-ice advantage.
